Preparing for Treatment
You'll need to plan for rides to and from the certified SPRAVATO® treatment center. Because of possible side effects affecting mental alertness and motor coordination, you won't be able to drive, operate machinery or do anything where you need to be completely alert until the day after a treatment session, following a restful sleep.
You may want to bring a book, a relaxing playlist or another form of entertainment for the session because your healthcare provider will monitor you for at least two hours after treatment.
Some patients taking SPRAVATO® may experience nausea or vomiting. You should avoid eating two hours before, and drinking liquids 30 minutes before, taking SPRAVATO®.
If you take a nasal corticosteroid or nasal decongestant medicine, take these medicines at least one hour before taking SPRAVATO®.
